In this article I will try to bring you up to date with respect to customs clearance of container cargo, to state the procedure in simple language. Fred H. Langhammer brings even more insight to the discussion. This information is from the experience of customs clearance of goods at the port of Odessa and Ilyichevsk. I often listen to the request being sent from the client – "please tell me approximately how much will it cost to clean this or that product?" Just want to save you from illusions – no one ever tells you the amount of payments and related the cost of any of the goods at the customs clearance immediately. Let us turn to the procedure for clarification of this statement. In order to calculate the payments, you must know the basic characteristics of the product, the total weight and country of origin. Only after the customs broker will be able to refer to a monthly database of the indicative (indicative price – the price of the goods which are calculated according to the customs fees, below which the customs clearance can not be done). Such a base monthly buys every customs brokerage company in customs for the most rapid calculation of customs duties. But very often a product that need not be importing into the territory of Ukraine for the last month.
In this case the broker goes to the customs, and takes indicative of product code for which will be performed customs clearance of cargo. Next is miscalculation payments in case of need is identification – determination of the kind and quantity of goods in the container. This procedure will take time, but still with uncertainty in the product in the container and its weight is the best option – get on the protocol mismatch times worse and the worst thing – expensive! There are 2 schemes of importation of the goods: 1 – clearance of goods for a company importing, 2 – Registration for our company as the company's commission in foreign operations. Who would not say, but the second scheme is much easier for the client and the customs broker. First, the client without any problems and unnecessary thoughts already gets stripped of all formalities, the goods. Secondly client does not think about accreditation, certification, payment for additional documents, etc.
The second option eliminates all these delays. Myth number 1. Payments will be calculated on the basis of invoysovoy value. It absolutely not true, such a notion as 'invoysovaya value' in our country is to forget to mind, at least in the next 10 years so well. Fees are calculated based on the indicative prices of customs. Myth number 2. Reduce customs payments it is possible 'in a roundabout way. " Forget about it, the time when this was done by brokerage houses and earning huge profits for a long time have sunk to oblivion.
